Brian, aka Bushboy, posted his monthly Last on the Card prompt, where he asks us to…
- Post the last photo from your camera’s SD card or the last photo from your phone taken in the month of October.
- No editing — who cares if it is out of focus, not framed as you would like, or the subject matter didn’t cooperate?
- No explanations needed — just the photo will do.
- Create a pingback to Brian’s post or link in the comments.
- Tag “The Last Photo.”
So here’s the last photo I took on my iPhone in October.
I took this photo on Sunday in the early evening as the sun was starting to set in the west. I noticed a tree with these very bright orange berry-like things all over it across the privacy fence that separates my property from my neighbor’s to the east. It’s not a particularly good or even interesting photo, but I realized, after looking at it in my iPhone’s photo library, that my shadow shows me holding up my iPhone and snapping the photo.
In case you’re interested, below is a close-up look at the berries on what turns out to be a Pyracantha Coccinea tree, commonly called a Firethorn tree. The berries are bitter and astringent, making them inedible when raw. But supposedly they can be cooked to make jellies, jams, sauces, and marmalade. I think I’ll take a pass on that.
